Trail anglers find tough fishing on Lake Wylie

Thursday Night Tournament Trail anglers found fishing tough May 3 on Lake Wylie with 17 of 46 boats weighing in.

Gene Webster came away with the win with 14.82 pounds.

Second place went to the team of Josh Warren and Mark Humphries.

The the trail is sponsored by A-1 Adams Bail Bond Agency, Lake Wylie Bait and Tackle, Shakey Head.Com, Jak’s Custom Baits, Koyote Fishing Tackle, Tru South Lures and The Great Outdoors.
